Shakespeare & The Book: Digital Exhibition

Partner(s): Jennifer Lee, David Kastan - Arts and Sciences, CUL

In this online exhibition, the Shakespeare first folio - the 1623 first printing in folio format of the collected works of William Shakespeare - is presented alongside Columbia University's copies of the other three 17th century Shakespeare folios. All four folios are shown within the context of the 17th century English printed play, along with copies of works known to Shakespeare. This exhibition, inspired by the publication of David Scott Kastan's Shakespeare & The Book, draws heavily on the splendid collection of four centuries of English and American literature and it is distinguished not only for the titles represented but also by their excellent condition and, in many cases, distinguished provenance.
